About Mike

Mike gets all the racing games because he understands that stuff even though he doesn't drive.

As more years go by, Visual Concepts’ NBA 2K series feels like a stuck record. Whilst it is uncontested, the basketball they deliver is largely of astounding quality. Last year’s effort felt like a backwards stumble. The changes to shooting appeared to backfire and many post-release patches were handed out […]

Stillalive Studios managed to impress with me Bus Simulator. The relaxed and charming running of a bus company managed to resonate with me as a regular public transport peasant.

I must admit it’s nice to see sport get back to some kind of normality in 2021. The calendar is mostly full these days and the mass cancellations of last year have been curtailed somewhat. With that in mind, it’s time to check out WRC 10 FIA World Rally Championship. […]

You know, I’m not sure how long it’ll take me to get used to seeing EA’s logo on an F1 game. This is Codemasters’ first title since the acquisition and I think more than a few people wondered what influence, if any, the new bosses would have. As it turns […]

7 months on I’ve finally had a chance to get a Playstation 5. Naturally, this opens me up for some reviews and I’ve had my eye on Chivalry 2 for the past month. Torn Banner Studio’s medieval multiplayer combat has been confined to PC, until recently. With console versions out, […]

Chivalry 2 – PS5 Review
